Have you heard the news?! It’s crazy amazingly fun! Gabriela McBride Has ARRIVED!
American Girl has released the 2017 Girl of the Year – GABRIELA McBRIDE!
Each year AG releases a featured doll celebrating the character’s unique talents and special storyline – complete with clothing, accessories, books, and a scene . . .
. . . plus clothing for girls to enjoy.
Gabriela is a 9 year old girl from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, whose love of poetry helps her overcome the challenge of stuttering. She works to save her community center from closing.
Gabriela loves dance – specifically tap, hip hop, and ballet.
A bonus, free craft/goodie is always offered at American Girl with every doll release. Check out the adorable notepad, cookie, and doll billboard!
Of course, there is always a photo op just around the corner!
Did you catch the OTHER NEWS?! Press releases stated Gabriela will be available for “2017 and beyond”. So, while usually the doll of the year is JUST for the calendar year, it appears Gabriela is here to stay awhile longer.
Kuddos to American Girl for diversifying their line of “Girl of the Year”, which has been historically Caucasian characters. We hope to see many other ethnicities represented throughout the years to come.
